Niger Seeds are highly desirable and very nutritious to many species, especially Goldfinches.

How to Feed Niger Seed

Due to its small size, you'll probably want to purchase a Niger seed feeder to feed your Finches.


We would always recommend your food is stored in an air tight container in a cool and dry location to ensure that it remains fresh up until the best before date.



Niger seed could potentially germinate and grow if the conditions are suitable, however as they are grown overseas in different climates the growing conditions in the UK don't always suit which means germination may not occur.

Our 25kg sacks of bird food are delivered as 2 x 12.55kg sacks, meaning you get more seed for your money. Plus they're much easier to handle, store and will remain fresher for longer.
